Welcome to Meticulum

Meticulum is an executive search practice specializing in the identification, recruitment and strategic placement of tough-to- find professionals within the Environmental Health, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industries.

Our approach is a novel one. The only searches we conduct are ones for which there are a very small number of candidates, the identification of whom requires a meticulous and painstakingly thorough approach to search. We attribute much of our success over the past twelve years to our strict policy of working on a maximum of three concurrent projects, allowing us the time necessary for finding the unfindable within a timeframe rarely achieved by larger firms.

Are we the solution for that tough search you're facing? We very well may be.

The Searches We Conduct

The common threads that run through our searches are their well-defined focus and level of complexity. If a position is too broadly-defined or generic, it's not appropriate for Meticulum. In order for us to be thorough and comprehensive, we need to be able to get our arms around a project in its entirety so that we're able to identify every possible candidate worthy of consideration. Our goal is to be definitive.

Our functional focuses are limited to the following six areas:

  • Research and Development
  • Environmental Engineering and Sciences
  • Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment
  • Toxicology and Pathology
  • Quality and Regulatory Compliance
  • Drug Safety
    (including Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology)

The majority of candidates we represent have earned PhDs, DVMs, MDs or comparable academic credentials. They are also highly-regarded in their chosen fields. Annual base salaries are typically within the $100,000 to $300,000 range. The searches we conduct are generally between the levels of Director and Senior Vice President, although we occasionally work on unique projects outside of this range. Our geographic scope covers all of the US and Canada as well as Ireland and the UK.

***We regretfully do not conduct any searches within Sales or Marketing, regardless of level.***

What You Can Expect

Meticulum is not your typical search firm. The challenging searches we conduct require a meticulous approach and dedication of resources that may be perceived as unjustifiable by most of our competitors. Yet we provide a thorough, efficient and proven process for locating and attracting highly qualified candidates to fill each search we conduct. Every resource in our search organization is dedicated to satisfying our clients' requirements for substantive and timely results. Our approach is client-oriented and distinguished by a commitment to service that is not only promised, but guaranteed.
